Here’s Today’s Clover: Olde Farte in a big black SmoooooVee… who hasn’t learned to use his rearview mirror and doesn’t grok the concept of moving over to the right to let faster-moving traffic get by:
Doncha just love these Clovers?
All it takes is a spoonful of poo to ruin a gallon of ice cream….
EPautos.com depends on you to keep the wheels turning! The control freaks (Clovers) hate us. Goo-guhl blackballed us.

Sorry 2 – 4 hours of sleep per 24 hour cycle is playing havoc with my comment quality and integrity.
Congrats all on everything.
I have my own copies of every amateurish thing I present, so archive or purge my leavings as you will.
We all have a part to play in the organisms we inhabit, unless of course some stern faced Leukocytes show up at your door heavily armed and with clipboards and back up across the street.
Think of me as your friendly neighborly anti-fragile macrophage, who will always find somewhere to dine, or a dozen somewheres even, so no worries.
If I recorded every instance of this I see every day I’d wear out the SD card on my phone!
Some choice Harlan Elison vids. There’s nothing I don’t love about this professional.

I’m not asking this in a seeking approval way, or necessary a consensus, but am just interested in the intellectual curiosity way.
I do wonder to what degree, if any, I might be considered a “Commerce Blocking Clover.”
My wife has Amazon Prime, I think I saw she found it at $79/year when it was on sale and yes I could have watched Man In The High Castle On It like a good consumer, but I find regular internet pay to play systems infuriating.
If other household members are available, I’ll use our Cox Advanced, HBO Go(or Now I forget which one) NetfoxNetflix, Hulu, Google Play credit cards, Google Wallet, Amazon, and what all have you, but only if they’ll do it.
I can’t stand any kind of questioning or compliance requirements. Any for truly for profit website that dog and pony’s you through the hoops. Even though you’ve already paid. I’d just as soon throw one of their android tablets out the window, if I have to use them and their crAPPS without their help.
Especially since, in some weird Zen way, the things that are purchased for this household are the real Man of the House. And not me, because I “can’t even, can’t even” when it comes to needing to do almost anything to anyone else’s liking and time constraint.
Because the mere fact that you wish to view the Hollywood “premium” content over, say, a high school play or the band down at the local watering hole means you want to steal it distribute it for nothing. Never mind that the Chinese (who’s government doesn’t recognize copyright) are the number one source of pirated material world wide.
I wouldn’t dare upload and distribute anything of much value personally. My IP doesn’t like such things any more than the biggest IPs do.
I just “find” and make available things, which I’m neither defending nor advocating.
I don’t care if wikipedia is disbanded, and also every structure in ever downtown with a metro population over 50K.
I’ll sleep in some covered shade here in the creosote, just as easy as I sleep know awash in 220 volt magnetism and WiFi signals and who knows how many other electromagnetic cocktails.
And yes, I’m part of some older media archiving group which I would never mention here, because that’s something else entirely and not appropriate to discuss here. And have several wikipedia logins.
Last night I edited one of the pages of a reality TV show, since I was “forced” to sit there and watch anyway. One of logins includes the word “libertarian” in it at the end, and is challenged to no end by the “enemies” of such a philosophy.
Maybe consider (or don’t because I am nothing but dust in the long run) that there is no China who is doing much of anything, but only 1.4 billion people doing all manner of things with little to know coordinate involved.
Consider the Chinese leadership has purged all kinds of content at the request of their trade partners, and for their own reputation and standing in the world.
Or put “china executes pirates” in your search box and have a look.
The biggest and least moral piracy to discuss, has to be women who are recorded in adult situations, and usually given little or no compensation for it, whatsoever.
Can you even imagine how you’d feel if it happened to you or someone you care about.

Anyway, I am only a humble Knight piece, and you’re talking about Bishop level topics, which are above my rank and ken. So take these things for what little they’re likely worth.
My biggest problem is, and why I’m so goofy and annoying in general, is I’m a divided Tor. Quite similar to the divided George.
“You have no idea of the magnitude of this thing. If she is allowed to infiltrate this world then George Costanza as you know him ceases to exist.
You see, right now I have Relationship George. But there is also Independent George. That’s the George you know, the George you grew up with… Movie George, Coffee Shop George, Liar George, Bawdy George.”
“I love that George.”
“Me too, and he’s dying. If Relationship George walks through this door, he will kill Independent George.
A George divided against itself cannot stand!”
